WORLD WAR III: WHAT WOULD IT TAKE?
To start a World War, you need a really good trigger. An event so far-reaching, so horrible, so traumatizing that the people demand instant justice: shoot first and ask questions later.
Governments can create atrocities to traumatize the public and start a massive war before anyone has time to question them.
No one knows exactly who the culprit is -- other than what the media tells them to believe.
Governments harness this huge public unrest and mobilize the people into an instant, colossal war.
Fueled by the outrage of World War I, the British Empire raised an all-volunteer army of two million men.
Great Britain also drafted all young men within a certain age range into the military -- by force.
Many other nations forced mandatory military service upon their young men as well.
LOTS OF MONEY, LOTS MORE TIME
Certain events can create enough public outrage to start a world war.
Before anyone has time to think, the mechanized slaughter of millions of people is underway.
Defense budgets explode -- and huge profits roll into the military-industrial complex.
"We'll take one of everything. No... make that one hundred thousand! We've got a war to win!"
Any other issues or problems the military-industrial complex may have been facing are then swept aside in the furious distraction and terror of a new war.
All other political concerns -- all lawsuits, punitive actions, et cetera -- are completely washed away in the sleepless, shrieking 24-hour news coverage.
CONSIDER THE HISTORY: WORLD WAR I
World War I started with a simple act: the assassination of Austria's leader, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, on June 28, 1914.
One political death was more than enough to start the entire process.
Ferdinand's blood-stained, bullet-punctured military jacket is still on display to this very day.
Within a little over a month, war was spreading like wildfire throughout all of Europe.
The United States was dragged in when German U-boats bombed and sank the Lusitania ocean liner on May 8, 1915, killing 1,198 people.
The United States didn't actually enter the war until 1917, but this devastating event was the first major provocation that brought them in.
WORLD WAR II
America's involvement in World War II started when 353 Japanese aircraft attacked America's biggest Pacific military base -- Pearl Harbor in Hawaii -- on December 7, 1941.
2,402 Americans died. 1,282 were wounded. 188 US aircraft were destroyed. Eight battleships, three cruisers, three destroyers, an anti-aircraft ship and a minelayer ship were damaged or destroyed.
Germany and Italy declared war on the United States just four days later -- on December 11th.
The United States immediately declared war on Germany and Italy in return -- having already gone to war with Japan.
Much like our conventional view of the Universe, America's involvement in World War II began with a big bang.
The destruction of Pearl Harbor pulled America into World War II even faster than the murder of Austria's leader and the sinking of the Lusitania had the first time.
A MAN CALLED INTREPID -- THE ORIGINAL JAMES BOND
According to top British spy Sir William Stevenson, in his whistleblower book "A Man Called Intrepid," Britain and the US were secretly working to pull Americans into the war.
Sir William Stevenson was the chief of British intelligence for the entire Western Hemisphere in World War II -- and Ian Fleming's original inspiration for James Bond.
Why was it necessary to pull America into World War II?
Hitler had been ransacking Europe since his invasion of Poland in the fall of 1939.
America did not want to get involved in a foreign war with a fearsome adversary -- even to protect their own beloved allies.
THE DAY OF DECEIT
Pearl Harbor was the trigger that finally got Americans sufficiently outraged to commit to joining the war -- so they would fight and die for their country.
Thanks to 16 years of research by one man, including a review of over 200,000 government documents released by the Freedom of Information Act, we now know that FDR ensured that Pearl Harbor would be attacked.
He did this by provoking the Japanese in a variety of ways, such as imposing fuel sanctions on them that would have quickly destroyed their country.
WHICH OF THE THREE CATEGORIES ARE YOU IN?
You probably fall into one of three camps on the issue of FDR deliberately provoking the Japanese into attacking Pearl Harbor.
You either already know about it, believe it is totally plausible, or think it's completely ridiculous.
Nonetheless, FDR's treason has been legally proven with extensive documentation.
The proof is far beyond anything that would be needed in a legal case to make a conviction.
FDR LET IT HAPPEN
Unbeknownst to the Japanese, their communications were tapped -- and all their codes had been broken.
The Japanese were under full surveillance -- with no secrets. They were completely unaware that their information security had been compromised.
Once FDR found out the Japanese had taken the bait, he dismissed all of his insiders' warnings of an impending strike against Pearl Harbor.
President Franklin Delano Roosevelt allowed the Japanese to attack Pearl Harbor with no resistance whatsoever.
This was conclusively proven as fact by Robert B. Stinnett -- who was also a World War II veteran. The results were published in his 2002 book, Day of Deceit.
As you can see on the front cover, the Chicago Sun-Times called it "Perhaps the most revelatory document of our time."
READ THE SUMMARY OF STINNETT'S CONCLUSIONS FOR YOURSELF
Here is the official summary of Stinnett's book:
Day of Deceit by William Stinnett
In Day of Deceit, Robert Stinnett delivers the definitive final chapter on America's greatest secret and our worst military disaster.
Drawing on twenty years of research and access to scores of previously classified documents, Stinnett proves that Pearl Harbor was not an accident, a mere failure of American intelligence, or a brilliant Japanese military coup.
By showing that ample warning of the attack was on FDR's desk and, furthermore, that a plan to push Japan into war was initiated at the highest levels of the U.S. government, he ends up profoundly altering our understanding of one of the most significant events in American history.
SIXTEEN YEARS OF RESEARCH AND OVER 200,000 DOCUMENTS
The Independent Institute wrote a fine summary of Stinnett's work in the following article, dated March 11, 2002 -- in the early aftermath of 9/11.
Do Freedom of Information Act Files Prove FDR Had Foreknowledge of Pearl Harbor?
According to Stinnett, the answers to the mysteries of Pearl Harbor can be found in the extraordinary number of documents he was able to attain through Freedom of Information Act requests.
Cable after cable of decryptions, scores of military messages that America was intercepting, clearly showed that Japanese ships were preparing for war and heading straight for Hawaii.
Stinnett, an author, journalist, and World War II veteran, spent sixteen years delving into the National Archives.
He pored over more than 200,000 documents, and conducted dozens of interviews.
This meticulous research led Stinnet to a firmly-held conclusion: FDR knew.
COMPLETE BLACKOUT FROM MAINSTREAM CORPORATE TELEVISION MEDIA
If you read the full article we just linked to, you may find these last two questions from an interview with Stinnett particularly relevant:
Do Freedom of Information Act Files Prove FDR Had Foreknowledge of Pearl Harbor?
What kind of attention did your book get from the mainstream media? Did it get as much attention as you thought it would?
Stinnett: Most of the mainstream print media has given Day Of Deceit very fine reviews.
Stinnett: Most of the mainstream print media has given Day Of Deceit very fine reviews.
That includes The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, San Francisco Chronicle, et al.
Mainstream TV has not been forthcoming. The exceptions have been C-Span, PAX TV, and local television stations.
Neither ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, or Fox News have carried a word....
Why do you think the information in your book is important?
Stinnett: It’s important because it reveals the lengths that some people in the American government will go to deceive the American public, and to keep this vital information—in our land of the First Amendment—from the people.
And that’s against everything I believe in.
NOT JUST WORLD WAR II
Think about this for a minute. It has now been proven, as an absolute, irrefutable fact, that FDR knew Pearl Harbor was coming -- and did nothing to stop it.
If you go on to read the comments below this article, you will find this excerpt from Haddington O'Heart on January 22, 2014.
As O'Heart says here, Stinnet's documents also prove that US officials created similar trigger events to start World War I and Vietnam:
We will embed the last two sentences here as physical text, just so you really get the point:
[Stinnett's] book goes on to cite clear Allied deceit involved in the sinking the of the Lusitania before WWI,and the made-up Gulf of Tonkin incident by President Johnson during the Viet Nam era...
And you STILL think there's no possibility of 9/11 [being an] "Inside Job"??
IT'S NOT A CONSPIRACY THEORY WHEN IT'S A PROVEN FACT
Relatively simple actions such as assassinating a political leader, blowing up a ship, goading an enemy into making an attack, or fabricating an incident entirely, have been used to start massive wars.
This is not "conspiracy theory." It is a proven fact.
We can still argue about who is doing this, and why, but we have absolute, irrefutable proof that it has been done.
There is also no reason to believe that the people who think and act this way have simply disappeared -- or have stopped making similar plans.
OPERATION NORTHWOODS: THE MOST SHOCKING EXAMPLE OF ALL
On May 1, 2001, just four months before the "unthinkable" horror of 9/11, ABC News broke the most damning story of all.
A plan to create fake terrorist attacks against the United States was approved by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and only stopped by President Kennedy himself.
Each branch of the military -- Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines -- has a number-one official who leads it. Most of these officials are called the Chief of Staff.
The heads of all branches of the American military asked Kennedy to approve a plan to create multiple, fake terrorist attacks against American targets in order to start a new war.
Together, they are called the Joint Chiefs of Staff. They form a central part of the president's advisory committee known as his "cabinet."
The Marines are technically a division within the US Navy. The Coast Guard is also a branch of the military, but was not included in the Joint Chiefs of Staff during the Kennedy administration.
The National Guard is available to the governors of each state for disaster assistance, and was also not represented in the Joint Chiefs of Staff during the Kennedy administration.
The Joint Chiefs' plan was code-named Operation Northwoods. Their plan called for fake terrorism to be staged in and around the United States.
This is called a "false flag operation." You create a self-inflicted wound and then blame it on your enemy. This gives you a worthy reason to attack them.
The highest-ranking military officials in America, from every branch but the Coast Guard, planned on killing innocent Americans and blaming it on Cuba.
HIJACKING AIRLINERS AND ATTACKING AMERICAN CITIES
The Joint Chiefs wanted to create real disasters -- such as blowing up an American ship in Guatanamo Bay, or evenhijacking airliners and using them to attack targets, such as in US cities.
This was expected to create "a helpful wave of national indignation" to start a new war.
At this time, their main target was the USSR's nearest ally to the US, Cuba -- only 90 miles away from the Florida coast.
These fake attacks, in turn, could be used to quickly escalate into a war with the Soviet Union -- and start World War III.
If there was a World War III back then, it might not have lasted very long. Earth would be glowing in the dark while the perps hid out underground.
Remember -- this was not pulled from a conspiracy site. This was hot off the presses of ABC News on May 1, 2001:
THE PUZZLE PALACE BY JAMES BAMFORD WAS THE FIRST MAJOR NSA EXPOSE' -- IN 1983
The Northwoods material, including the original documents, was leaked to James Bamford -- the author of the 1983 classic The Puzzle Palace.
The NSA waged a hard fight to stop The Puzzle Palace from coming out, and did temporarily get it pulled from bookstores -- but they lost the battle.
According to the New York Times, "until now [1983,] no one has published a comprehensive and detailed report on the agency."
THE KNOWLEDGE WAS AVAILABLE LONG BEFORE IT BECAME MAINSTREAM
Amazon's own review of Bamford's book after its 1997 re-release is quite revealing -- now that most of this information is common knowledge:
James Bamford's The Puzzle Palace: Amazon Review
In 1947, the governments of the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand signed a secret treaty in which they agreed to cooperate in matters of signals intelligence.
In effect, the governments agreed to pool their geographic and technological assets in order to listen in on the electronic communications of China, the Soviet Union, and other Cold War bad guys--all in the interest of truth, justice, and the American Way, naturally.
The thing is, the system apparently catches everything.
Government security services, led by the U.S. National Security Agency, screen a large part (and perhaps all) of the voice and data traffic that flows over the global communications network.
Fifty years later, the European Union is investigating possible violations of its citizens' privacy rights by the NSA.
The Electronic Privacy Information Center, a public advocacy group, has filed suit against the NSA, alleging that the organization has illegally spied on U.S. citizens.
James Bamford's The Puzzle Palace: Amazon Review
Being a super-secret spy agency and all, it's tough to get a handle on what's really going on at the NSA.
However, James Bamford has done great work in documenting the agency's origins and Cold War exploitsin The Puzzle Palace.
Beginning with the earliest days of cryptography (code-making and code-breaking are large parts of the NSA's mission), Bamford explains how the agency's predecessors helped win World War II by breaking the German Enigma machine and defeating the Japanese Purple cipher....
Bamford backs his serious historical and technical material (this is a carefully researched work of nonfiction) with warnings about how easily the NSA's technology could work against the democracies of the world.
Bamford quotes U.S. Senator Frank Church: "If this government ever became a tyranny ... the technological capacity that the intelligence community has given the government could enable it to impose total tyranny.
"There would be no way to fight back, because the most careful effort to combine together in resistance to the government ... is within the reach of the government to know."
This is scary stuff. --David Wall
THE NORTHWOODS DOCUMENTS FIRST APPEARED IN BAMFORD'S 2001 BOOK, BODY OF SECRETS
The Northwoods documents were first published in James Bamford's astonishing, NSA-exposing book from 2001,Body of Secrets:
BAMFORD WAS WAY AHEAD OF THE CURVE ON THE NSA
Here is an excerpt from the Publisher's Weekly review of Body of Secrets in 2001:
The National Security Agency (NSA), writes Bamford, has made the United States an "eavesdropping superpower," capable of capturing, deciphering and analyzing "signal intelligence" communications -- in whatever form it may exist, and from whatever nation it may be transmitted.
Yet with a budget ($4 billion a year) and staff (numbering in the tens of thousands) that dwarf its more famous cousin, the CIA, and with a headquarters, known as "Crypto City," that is its own self-contained community, little is known of NSA among the public and, more troublingly, even within other parts of government.
Uncovering the secrets of NSA, its history and operations, has become Bamford's life's work, first begun in his now classic The Puzzle Palace (1982) and continued in this significantly revised and expanded present volume.
With remarkable access to highly sensitive documents and information, Bamford takes the reader from the beginnings of NSA during the early cold war, through its roles in such watershed events as the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Vietnam War, to the amazingly sophisticated developments in information technology taking place within NSA today.
What Bamford discovers is at times surprising, often quite troubling but always fascinating.
In his conclusion, he is at once awed and deeply disturbed by what NSA can now do: ever more sophisticated surveillance techniques can mean ever greater assaults on the basic right of individual privacy.
In a computer system that can store five trillion pages of text, anyone and everyone can be monitored... This is the stuff spy thrillers are made from.
UNBELIEVABLE... BUT NONETHELESS TRUE
You already know about the NSA -- but if you haven't seen the Northwoods information before, you may be feeling quite shocked by now.
At least one member of Congress made sure these Northwoods documents were leaked to Bamford in time for his May 2001 book release.
These documents, again, revealed a plan from 1962 that involved hijacking passenger airliners and attacking American cities with them to start a war.
Was this leak merely a random event? Or was it produced by a secret alliance that anticipated similar attacks in the near future -- and wanted to stop them?
By this point, you may be feeling like you want to stop reading so you can maintain a kinder, gentler, simpler view of the world.
Many others choose to "attack the messenger" and try to find flaws in his or her argument -- as this is much easier than looking at the facts.
The utter impossibility of believing people could think and act like this -- treating human life as utterly expendable -- can make the truth very difficult to swallow.
Nonetheless, it is an established fact that approximately 4 percent of men and 2 percent of women are sociopaths -- capable of acting without conscience.
Most of them are nonviolent. However, violent sociopaths are truly dangerous people. They can torture or murder others and feel no remorse whatsoever.
The Cabal is truly the world's largest, oldest, most comprehensive organized crime syndicate -- run by a centuries-old cult of sociopathic people.
JAMES BAMFORD NOW HAS NEWFOUND CREDIBILITY -- AND PUBLICITY ON C-SPAN
Here is the author of this explosive book, James Bamford, on C-SPAN -- now that his damning expose' of the NSA has become common knowledge after Snowden.
THE JOINT CHIEFS WOULD HAVE ACED JOHN GLENN TO GET A WAR GOING
Our inability to fathom such actions may be precisely how this same group of people, and their descendants, have been able to control us for so long.
Even a beloved American astronaut, John Glenn, would have been effortlessly sacrificed to get the next world war going.
Read this next excerpt from ABC's groundbreaking 2001 article:
US Military Planned Fake Terrorist Attacks to Provoke War With Cuba
Code named Operation Northwoods, the plans reportedly included the possible assassination of Cuban émigrés, sinking boats of Cuban refugees on the high seas, hijacking planes, blowing up a U.S. ship, and even orchestrating violent terrorism in U.S. cities....
America's top military brass even contemplated causing U.S. military casualties, writing: "We could blow up a U.S. ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba," and, "casualty lists in U.S. newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation."
Details of the plans are described in Body of Secrets (Doubleday), a new book by investigative reporter James Bamford about the history of America's largest spy agency, the National Security Agency [NSA].
However, the plans were not connected to the agency, he notes....
The Joint Chiefs even proposed using the potential death of astronaut John Glenn during the first attempt to put an American into orbit as a false pretext for war with Cuba, the documents show.
Should the rocket explode and kill Glenn, they wrote, "the objective is to provide irrevocable proof … that the fault lies with the Communists et all Cuba [sic]."...
LET'S MEET THE PLAYERS
The Joint Chiefs of Staff are the highest-ranking members of each branch of the military. They report directly to the President of the United States.
Let's take a look at them. Remember that all of these men completely agreed with staging terrorism, and presented the plan to John F. Kennedy.
General Lyman L. Lemnitzer, Army, Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff
General George Decker, Army Chief of Staff
General Curtis E. LeMay, Air Force Chief of Staff
Admiral George W. Anderson, Chief of Naval Operations
General David M. Shoup, Commandant of the Marine Corps
President John F. Kennedy with Northwoods Joint Chiefs of Staff: LeMay, Lemnitzer, Decker, Anderson and Shoup
LANDSDALE REQUESTED OPERATION NORTHWOODS
When we read the Northwoods document, we see that others are involved besides the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The original request for a plan to create a pretext to invade Cuba came from Brigadier General Edward Landsdale:
Brig. Gen. Edward Landsdale, Chief of Operations of the Cuba Project
TWO JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF SECRETARIES ALSO DIRECTLY INVOLVED
The two secretaries named as knowing accomplices in the Operation Northwoods document are Rear Admiral Francis J. Blouin and Brigadier General Michael J. Ingelido:
Rear Admiral Francis J. Blouin, Commander of US Navy Amphibious Force, Secretary of Joint Chiefs of Staff
Brig. Gen. Michael J. Ingelido, Air Force, Secretary of Joint Chiefs of Staff
DECKER SACKED AND REPLACED BY WHEELER
On September 30, 1962, just six months after he vetoed Operation Northwoods, Kennedy sacked Army Chief of Staff George Decker and appointed General Earle Wheeler in his place.
General Earle G. Wheeler, Army Chief of Staff
LEMNITZER SACKED AND REPLACED BY TAYLOR, KENNEDY'S FAVORITE
Kennedy also sacked General Lyman L. Lemnitzer, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, less than a year after hearing about this deeply disturbing plan.
On October 1, 1962, Kennedy appointed General Maxwell D. Taylor to replace Lemnitzer as the new Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
JFK and his brother Robert both felt General Taylor had "unquestionable integrity, sincerity, intelligence, and diplomacy."
General Maxwell D. Taylor, Army, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
PHOTO OF THE JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF TOGETHER AFTER SACKING OF LEMNITZER AND DECKER
Here are two images of the Joint Chiefs of Staff together, shortly after Kennedy appointed Taylor as their new chairman and Wheeler as Army Chief of Staff.
In this first image, notice Taylor is closer to Kennedy than anyone else. Taylor also stands with his right shoulder behind Kennedy out of respect.
By comparison, General Curtis LeMay is very rigid and is making sure no part of his body touches Kennedy.
Notice also the body language of Shoup, Wheeler and LeMay on the left, all of whom are huddled together with full contact on their arms:
PHOTO OF JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF IN LATE 1962
This next image shows Wheeler, Le May, Taylor, Anderson and Shoup meeting together, shortly after Taylor's appointment.
Taylor looks noticeably confident, with his hands held together in a hopeful, expectant position.
By comparison, LeMay, to the immediate left of Taylor, looks noticeably stiff and distrustful.
LeMay appears visibly uncomfortable by raising his shoulder, almost like he is flinching away from Taylor, and cocking an eyebrow.
THE MILITARY CONTINUED TRYING AFTER NORTHWOODS
